In this class, you will create friendship bracelets inspired by Andrea Modica: Extended Moments. This exhibition focuses on photographs Modica has taken in Italy, where she has spent significant time in Italy since 1990, when she traveled to Sicily on a Fulbright Scholarship. Images the artist has taken in that country on repeated visits represent a range of her interests—women and girls, youth friendships, landscape, still life and—more recently—horse hospitals. Modica speaks of seeking to make compositions that draw viewers in from motifs that are not particularly beautiful in and of themselves. She describes her practice as conceptual, but likewise acknowledges the importance of the physical object in her work.Andrea Modica: Extended Moments will be on view through February 21, 2016.
